With the 2012 NFL draft now in the rear-view mirror, teams have already begun signing undrafted free agents.

The Chiefs already have inked at least 14 different rookie FAs to new deals, but there are still more out there that KC should go after.

Here are three more players that the Chiefs should pursue in the coming days:

DE Donte Paige-Moss

Paige-Moss is arguably the best rookie defensive lineman that is still available right now.

He might also be the best pass-rusher that is out there as well.

Paige-Moss recorded seven sacks in his sophomore season with the Tarheels back in 2010.

If they can get him, he could be an asset as an extra pass-rusher on this defense.

DE Justin Francis

Francis is probably the second-best pass-rushing UDFA that is still up for grabs, after Paige-Moss.

He led Rutgers with 6.5 sacks in his senior campaign last year and is one of the more athletic defensive ends that wasn't taken in this draft. 

At 6'4", 275 pounds, he possess the size and athleticism to give himself at least a shot at making an NFL roster, which is why the Chiefs should sign the former Scarlet Knight and give him a chance.

TE Josh Chichester

The Chiefs don't necessarily need another tight end, but with the injury concerns of their top two players at that position, it might not hurt to add another one.

Chichester is a dependable pass-catcher, as he averaged around 25 catches and 300 yards in each of his four seasons for Louisville.

Like the other prospects on this list, he is still very raw, which means that he will have a lot to improve on if he wants to make an NFL roster.

That being said, he has decent upside which makes this kid worth a flier at the very least.
